  • Description

    Description

    Right now we start with construction of our new Farmbuilding, but there is still some work arround! Gardenseason is almost over! We have a 30 year old edible forest garden. It is one of the oldest in Central Europe. There is also a 10 year old forest garden with Chinampas. We are in the process of establishing a syntropic agroforestry on a large trial area. Of course there are numerous permaculture elements and bed forms to be found.

    We try to use everything from our forest gardens wherever possible, we do not supply markets and receive no government subsidies.

    We have had volunteers from all over the world for over 10 years, and we have also been with Workaway for 3 years.

    Minimum stay 2 weeks.

    Arrival day is Sunday evening, departure day is Friday evening, or Saturday morning.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are one of the most famous Permaculture Farms in Austria. We do have one of the oldest and well established edible forest gardens under European conditions. In Wels you can still feel the heritage of the Roman kingdom. If the weather is fine we are sitting outside on the campfire.

  • Help

    Help

    Basically we divide everyone according to their skill. Cooking together, keeping the building and the volunteers' premises clean is part of the work for the community.

    Everyone does everything, nobody is parked for cooking or cleaning.

    We are more about living together than just working 5 days 5 hours! If you just want to take a cheap holiday with us, we are in the wrong place! You have to consider that you are the Volunteer!

    Grundsätzlich teilen wir jeden nach seinem Geschick ein. Es gibt vielfältigste Beschäftigungsfelder. Gemeinsames Kochen, das Gebäude und die Räumlichkeiten der Volontäre sauber halten ist Teil der Arbeit für die Gemeinschaft.

    Bei uns macht jeder alles, keiner wird fürs Kochen oder Putzen abgestellt.

    Bei uns geht es mehr um miteinander zu leben als nur 5 Tage 5 Stunden abzuarbeiten! Wer nur billigen Urlaub bei uns machen möchte, ist bei uns falsch am Platz! Grundsätzlich sollte dir klar sein, dass du der Volontär bist!
